21-year-old Brian Rosa and a juvenile have been arrested for an arson in Johnston.

A vacant triple-decker home on Greenville avenue went up in flames early Sunday morning.

Investigators say Rosa, along with his juvenile accomplice, were attempting to steal cooper from the home.

According to Police Rosa is also being charged in an arson last week in an abandoned home on Yale avenue. In that instance he also attempted to steal cooper.

Rosa is charged with first degree arson, conspiracy, and larceny under $1,500.
